Crash

Hi.
I just bought a new system.
I oinstalled oni and tried to run it and it crashed during cinematics when I clicked the mouse. Then I let the cinematics finish and it just crashed before the game opened. I went in and right clicked the program and set it to Compatibility mode Windows 95 but it still crashes at the end of the cinematics whether CD is in or not.
I run Windows XP. Any ideas?

Re: Crash

0) Try running THIS executable instead of the original one (back up the original just in case).
1) Try renaming intro.bik in GameDataFolder so that Oni doesn't find it.
2) Let us see the startup.txt from Oni's installation folder if neither of the above solves the crashing.

EDIT: Also recommended is the Daodan DLL.
http://geyser.oni2.net/EXE/pc.east/daodan.txt
Go here: http://geyser.oni2.net/EXE/pc.east/
Put the DLL in your Oni folder and run Oni.
If it complains, download the EXE as well.

Re: Crash

@ Harry:
Maybe make this a sticky, because this is the crash fixed by Ian: Kaiwyn described the symptoms really well.
OpenGL extensions are dumped either at the normal end of the intro, or when you stop the intro by pressing a key.
So Kaiwyn's report covers everything the basic user sees. The situation is standard. And the topic name is nice smile

@ Kaiwyn & everyone interested: check out the Developer Mode, too. Enjoy Oni!
There are other addons, but I guess we should make a separate sticky for those.

Re: Crash

Bumping this one because of a PM I got on Youtube:

jhmvr wrote:

Hey, man i want to play ONI again but after install i click play, then shows intro, everything ok, but then (right after intro ends) appears a message "Oni Crashed!" and the game closes, you know anything about that ?

Linked to this thread, which ought to be a sticky.

Re: Crash

If you are 100% sure that the above fix(es) didn't work for you, then you're having a different problem than the one discussed here...
I suggest you browse/search the Troubleshooting forums (here and on the previous OCF) for problems similar to yours and related fixes.
If you can't find a solution in the old threads (or if you're too lazy to do so, which I can understand), I suggest you post a new topic here.
For best results, be sure to clearly describe your OS and GFX setup, the exact nature of your crash, and what you already tried to fix it.
Hope this helps.

Re: Crash

Late reply @ fatman (probably dealt with in another thread): this is not "the same problem"; probably corrupt level files.

@ pontic:
I'd recommend this part more than anything else

Not really a patch, actually much better than a patch (Dev Mode etc).
For more info on the Daodan, see here: http://wiki.oni2.net/Daodan_DLL

Re: Crash

I wonder, does anyone, who owns non-English version of Oni, face one interesting problem?... When using the patched Oni executable in order to avoid "crash" I noticed that all letters of my native language just disappear from the screen (both in the menu and during the game). It's not a big problem, but i still wonder if there are any ways to fix this.

Sorry, if the question's been asked here before =^.^'=

Re: Crash

Try installing the Daodan dll along with it.

And make sure you are using http://geyser.oni2.net/EXE/pc.buka/ that version. It is for the russian version of the game.

Will that executable work for windows 7? I have the same problem, the movie plays and then it says "Oni has stopped working".

Re: Crash

My Anti-Virus goes nuts just trying to download the Anniversary Edition 1.3 or whatever is linked here.  It says it has Trojan.gen and then deletes it.  It even says that the website hosting it is unsafe and I have to bypass a security to access it.   I have an actual retail ONI disc and I just want to get it running.

Re: Crash

What's your antivirus?

Is this the page and the file that is giving you problems:
http://mods.oni2.net/node/79
?

As you can see the page is clear:
https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/017f6e … /detection

And so is the installer:
https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/35fb0 … /detection

Re: Crash

I am not here to get into a pissing match over who's Antivirus is better.  I am using Symantec and I have been for a very long time.  Your clear list did not list Symantec on it's page for the first link.  And when I turned it off and downloaded the file anyway then turned it back on it stopped it from installing too.

I tried simply posting links to the image but for whatever reason, I am not allowed.  So sorry about the images just right click on the link and click view image.

Here is the flag for the page.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/9l23c8zewn7unev/2018-03-15%2019.19.08.jpg?dl=0

Here is the attempt to download the file.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/47jydlnqbp921id/2018-03-15%2019.19.50.jpg?dl=0

Here is the denial to download the file.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/z7uqblc95mnchkt/2018-03-15%2019.20.02.jpg?dl=0

Here is a virus inside the file.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/kcjc6jkh61llrbz/2018-03-15%2019.25.39.jpg?dl=0

The question still remains, is there a way to get my retail copy of Oni working without downloading a file that may be filled with viruses?
